A man has filed a restraining order against actor Columbus Short, claiming the “Stomp the Yard” star broke his jaw in a February fight.
The order requires Short to keep 100 yards away from Jason Hill. According to BlackAmericaWeb.com, Hill told authorities that he was beaten so badly by Short that he had to undergo two surgical procedures to fix his broken jaw. Hill said he continues to feel unsafe because Short and two other men allegedly showed up at his home in North Hollywood on April 5 and threatened to do more physical harm to him.
Short’s lawyer told TMZ the fight occurred during a pick-up basketball game, and said Hill hit Short first. The attorney also said Short went to the apartment complex to visit friends and did not see Hill there.
